Young Alumni 2019

St. Andrew’s-Sewanee recently received an early Christmas present. An anonymous donor has come forward and challenged the school’s alumni to step up their support of the school. As an encouragement, the donor is matching, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250,000, all unrestricted alumni gifts between December 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020. Additionally, if the school doubles the number of alumni donors over the last fiscal year, the donor will donate another $250,000 for a total contribution of $500,000.

2019-2020 SAS Fund Leadership

The success of the SAS Fund campaign is dependent upon the work and dedication of volunteers representing alumni, friends, faculty and staff, parents, grandparents and trustees. The school is very grateful for its enthusiastic and loyal volunteers. Please contact us if you would like more information regarding SAS Fund leadership opportunities at SAS.

I became what I am largely on the strength of what I learned and experienced at St. Andrew's. My education and values were set there; my faith was confirmed there. How does one pay back their family and such a large part of their youth? Little by little, with whatever meager contributions can be made. I wish I could do more. May God bless SAS and all who make it what it is. McFerrin Smith, StA '63
